Sounds like the starter is pulling too much current, probably because of a shorted winding. Sounds like starter needs replacing. You could remove it take it to Autozone for testing.

2002 sebring keeps blowing 20amp starter and fuel fuse


When does the fuse blow? As soon as it's replaced or when you try to start the car? Take the small wire off the starter solenoid. This will separate the fuel pump from the starter solenoid. With a new fuse in turn the ignition switch to the start position. Does the fuse blow? If so, then the fuel pump and/or the wiring to it has a short. If the fuse doesn't blow then the starter solenoid or the wiring between the ignition switch and the solenoid has a short.

No dash lights no start for 98 breeze


Power runs from battey to starter solenoid , from there to ignition switch and through neutral switch on the transmission shift lever. Tracking down shorts is easiest if you connect a 12v test light across the fuse clips and start disconnecting wires one at a time until the light goes out. But in your case I think a physical exam of the wires to the neutral switch may reveal your problem Good luck!

I have a 2004 dodge stratus that has power to lights but does not turn over when i try to crank even after jumping it off.


Hi.

Check ignition switch fuse. This is a 20 Amps. see that it has not blown. In 2004 Fuse should be nr 8 in the power box under the hood (newer models #24).

Once you are sure that battery, fuse and wires are OK, check starter and ignition switch. Check if there is 12V to starter while cranking. If there is power and the starter motor does not turn, then the motor is gone.
If there is no power to starter motor when you crank, then the ignition switch located inside the steering column may need replacement. Before repairing, try reading error codes with a code scanner.

The van won't start and it keeps blowing the 20 amp engine fuse when you try starting it.


Get under the car and check the starter. Ok really grab a hammer and hit the starter a couple times. Try starting it again. If it dont work you should replace the starter. The starter maybe pulling too much power from the battery trying to start the car. Good Luck!
